Isle of Palms’ smaller sister island, Sullivan’s Island, is connected by a 100-yard bridge and sits at the mouth of Charleston Harbor. Locals describe the difference between the two islands simply — Isle of Palms is “more of a resort town,” while Sullivan’s Island is “more of a beach town.”
Life here generally moves at a more leisurely pace though not for lack of things to discover. Whether a history buff, an aspiring author or just a beach bum there’s something for everyone. This lively beach town exudes island charm from it’s quaint restaurant area, public tennis courts to it’s old-fashioned community playground complete with a grandstand gazebo. Beneath its southern charm is a colorful local history. Visitors can visit Fort Moultrie, originally built during the Revolutionary War, Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse, as well as the burial site of Seminole Indian Chief Osceola.
Sullivan’s Island also has a rich literary history that continues today. In fact, Edgar Allen Poe was stationed at Fort Moultrie when he penned his short story, “The Gold Bug.”
Sullivan’s Island also offers all the natural and sporting amenities you could want — wide, open beaches, wildlife, fishing, swimming, kiteboarding, boating, sunning and more.
